Ten thrilling adventures for Sarah Jane and her friends, as seen on TV, read by Elisabeth Sladen, Daniel Anthony and Anjli Mohindra. Sarah Jane Smith always finds herself in trouble. As an old friend of the Doctor she's used to encountering aliens, battling monsters and defeating evil. Along with her friends Luke, Clyde, Rani, Maria and Sky - not to mention supercomputer Mr Smith - Sarah Jane and her trusty lipstick are prepared for anything the universe throws at them. In these amazing stories Sarah Jane finds herself investigating a private health clinic, a mysterious stone circle, some lethal alien artefacts, a strange Victorian house and a bizarre hill-carving. Then there's the camping trip that sees the friends stranded in Snowdonia, the deadly computer virus, the terrifying creatures from a world of nightmares, the steam-powered robot, and the race of aliens who think Sarah Jane is a dangerous law-breaker... Specially written for audio, eight of the stories are read by Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane), one by Daniel Anthony (Clyde) and one by Anjli Mohindra (Rani).Show more
"Ingenious and funny . . . Magnificent." -- Alan Moore, creator of Watchmen and V for Vendetta Jack Sparks died while writing this book. It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he'd already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed. Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account. Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed -- until now. "Wow. Seriously hard to put down." -- M. R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the GiftsShow more
The ice-planet Vinsk, in the year 2112. The all-new anti-viral handwash, Gemini, has been laced with Meme-Spawn: a sentient micro-organism which makes the user fluent in every language in the universe. However, manufacturer Zalnex made one crucial mistake. They didn't test Gemini on humans, who are seized by the violent urge to communicate but speak every language all at once - with a manic, garbled shriek - and pass on the virus by touch. The Doctor and Amy arrive on an Earth-bound cargo-ship loaded with Gemini, where a human crew are succumbing to the virus which has nasty second and third phases in store. When the Doctor and Amy are separated, they both know that it's only a matter of time before Amy is infected. With the ship locked on course, and no way of curing the sufferers, the Doctor is faced with a terrible decision: does he save Amy, or Earth? Written specially for audio by Jason Arnopp, 'The Gemini Contagion' is read by Meera Syal, who played Nasreen Chaudhry in the BBC TV episodes The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood.Show more
